CA Landscaping: Xeriscape


First emerging in the early 80’s xeriscaping was coined by the Denver Water Board as a way of cutting down water use during droughts. Xeriscape is a combination of the Greek word “xeros” and English word landscape which combine is supposed to mean…dry landscape… Or no landscape. It takes away the use of water, or at least, diminishes it in order to conserve natural resources. Unfortunately, this name can be deceptive. Many people imagine that a xeriscaping lawn means that their Sacramento home will feature a lone cactus and various forms of tumble weeds. Despite this Wild West misconception. Xeriscaping has begun to really grow over its thirty year lifespans and we know it’s because having a xeriscape can mean a whole bunch of different unique landscape ideas.
